  • LITTER FINES GOING UP TO £100

    I want our generation to leave our environment in a better state than we found it.  Litter and dog fouling don’t just encourage vermin and anti social behaviour they also encourage a who cares? attitude in our society.  In 2018 with all the advance’s in technology, education and living standards surely we don’t need to live…

  • TRAVELLER DEFENCES- UPDATE

    The Royal Borough’s Cabinet has been briefed on the issues surrounding illegal encampments at 10 vulnerable sites across the Royal Borough. I have asked that these included Dedworth Manor, Whiteley and Maidenhead Road (and they have duly been included in their review). I have also spoken with the relevant members of the Royal Borough’s cabinet…

  • OSGOOD PARK IMPROVEMENTS CONTINUE

    New climbing frames will be installed at Osgood Park next week. These should appeal to 8-13 year olds who often use the “toddlers” play area at the park. They will be installed near the picnic benches on rubber matting. Something that many park users have requested so hopefully they will be well used. Another 6,000…

  • SUTHERLAND GRANGE GETS CCTV

    I have arranged for CCTV to monitor the recycling unit at Sutherland Grange. It’s one of a few recycling facilities in Dedworth and I want to try to make it work for all residents. Constant fly tipping has brought the continued use of the unit into question. Hopefully the existence of CCTV will cut down then…

  • WOLF LANE IMPROVEMENTS CONTINUE

    I am responsible for Wolf Lane from Dedworth Rd to Poolmans Rd.  Over the past two years I have initiated a number of improvements here: resurfacing from Poolmans Rd to Keepers Farm Close; resurfacing Forest Rd to Dedworth Rd; replacing the streetlights; planting a new tree at the Keepers Farm Close entrance; fixing the wall; trees…

  • DEDWORTH SENSORY GARDEN- A NEW COMMUNITY FACILITY

    The Deputy Mayor of the Royal Borough Cllr Colin Rayner opened the Dedworth Sensory Garden today. This was a disused car park at the end of Fuzzens Walk that was home to a couple of shipping containers, assorted litter and drugs equipment.  In the past year it has been cleared, cleaned and properly fenced off. …
